Beautiful. How did you simulate the turned on headlights?

I use a photo app called Polarr - if you buy the premium version you can add layers, including various types of flashes and flares. If you then Colour Mask with the feather, if you position it right it looks like the headlights are on.

That's a really neat job.  I especially like your painting and detailing of the chassis, suspension, rear axle etc, all the underside looks very realistic.  Cheers.

Cool Starliner. It has an neat, vintage vibe.

Oh man! Thats sweet. Definitely has the look. I have always had a special spot for the starliner. I seen one in a magazine that had a 427 SOHC motor. I wish, I wish I wish!
